16/20 -

Here in Paradise, smiling is "cultural". It's expected. It's also infectious. Or maybe it's just that it is Paradise. In any case, I smile more here than I ever did before. Fake? I'm not even certain at times. Perhaps I've learned to fake a smile and it becomes self fulfilling.

Here's my little test for the group. See if you can tell which smiles are real and which are faked.








I'm the second one down.

Always a "free" lunch when your talking variable annuities.
